Rams trade WR Tavon Austin to the Cowboys

By Vincent Frank

Tavon Austin is finally on the move. After falling out of favor big time in Sean McVay’s offense with the Los Angeles Rams, the former first-round pick has been traded to the Dallas Cowboys in exchange for a sixth-round pick.

It’s a massive fall from grace for a receiver in Austin who the then St. Louis Rams selected No. 8 overall back in 2013. After putting up 1,575 combined yards in 2015 and 2016, Austin tallied just north of 300 last season.

The move comes after Dallas released Dez Bryant earlier in the offseason. Obviously, the Cowboys are still in need of wide receiver help. It remains to be seen if Austin will actually bring that to the table in 2018.
